Yup, you guessed it.  We went to Disneyland.  So.  Much.  Fun.  Once again I am grateful to have used the RideMax app to plan out our day.  Not only did it guide us away from the big crowds but gave us pointers like which line to stand in when the line splits.

We got to the park nice and early, about an hour before it opened and were able to get a jump start on the fast pass line for the Racers ride in Cars Land.  Last year Lincoln was just a little too short and was crushed when he couldn't go on it.  This year thanks to a few growth spurts he was over the minimum height requirement for all the rides he wanted to go on.

Lincoln LOVED the Racers ride.  Payton did not.  Haha!  On a positive note, with our fast pass we walked ride on.  Payton didn't have much time to panic.  So awesome!

The many faces of Lincoln.  These pictures crack me up every time I see them.

Did you know that Disneyland has a petting zoo?  It does! And it is the cleanest petting zoo I have ever been too.  We even got to meet one of the horses that pulls the trolleys around the park.  This is Eddie.
Funny story about Lincoln.  There was a hand washing station to use when your were done petting the animals.  Up until this point, all bathroom and/or hand washing stations were motion activated.  However, this particular hand washing station was old school.  You had to turn the knob for the water to come out and everything.  :O)   When Lincoln was done washing his hands he went up to the paper towel dispenser and waved his hands in front of it to trigger the paper towels to come out. Only nothing happened.  There was a moment of confusion before he realized you just pull the towels out the bottom.  It cracked us up.

They also had an Iron Man Display.  Lincoln was so excited to see the suits. 

As we were getting ready to leave Minnie Mouse came out and we were able to meet her.  She was so sweet and even came to the stroller to say hi to Lincoln.  Unfortunately he was all out of smiles.  Haha!

Each year we let the kids pick out one thing for a souvenir and this year Payton wanted Minnie Mouse Ears with a princess crown and veil.  Immediately I think, "No, you will never wear them after we leave today."  But she insisted that is what she wanted.  I think Dave was thinking the same thing because he came out of the store with a hat for each of the kids that they can wear again next year.  And let her pick out another souvenir.
Lincoln wanted the gun you see in the picture with Minnie.  Payton ended up getting a Plush Princess Dolly that turns from Ariel to Aurora. 
We had such a great time!
